Exoterra Plantation soil
« on: November 24, 2015, 20:43:13 PM »
I decided to try this for a change..........................wish I hadn't >:D

It's terrible.

I'm well used to using dried soil blocks that need to soak, so I know I didn't do anything wrong.
The pack stated to leave it soaking in 3l of water for 30 minutes............well, it's been 2 hours now and it's only slightly expanded and still rock solid and will most likely go in the bin unless is magically absorbs the water overnight.

TBH, it hasn't a patch on the cheaper variants from the likes of Dealz and Ikea.

Waste of money.  >:(
